This Technical Standard (TS) provides operational guidance, practical lessons learned and experience gained, guides to good practice, and reference information on the safe handling of uranium. The TS provides information to assist uranium facilities in complying with Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 835, Occupational Radiation Protection (10 CFR 835) (DOE 1998a). This TS supplements the DOE G 441.1 series of Guides, DOE Orders, and DOE-STD-1098-99, Radiological Control (RCS) (DOE 1999a) and has as its sole purpose the protection of workers and the public from the hazards that are inherent in uranium storage, processing, and handling.
